Glaser led the way with three individual victories, touching first in the 400 IM Saturday and the 200 breast and 200 IM Sunday. Nora Brolsma was victorious in the 100 freestyle and 100 butterfly Saturday and recorded a new personal season-best time in the 200 free Sunday.
Brittany Fozkos (100 backstroke), Carly Marshall (50 free) and the 200 free relay team of Ellie Roeing, Samantha Feulner, Julia Comodeca and Marshall were also winners at the eight-team weekend meet.
